(CBS) After injuring his left elbow in Wednesday night’s game, Derrick Rose is hopeful to play Friday.

“I want to play,” Rose told the Chicago Tribune early Thursday morning.

With 3 minutes, 35 seconds left, Derrick Rose fell and banged his left elbow on the court after being fouled by Damien Wilkins.

X-rays were negative, but Rose’s elbow was seen heavily bandaged and iced after the game.

The Bulls have an off-day Thursday facing the Magic Friday.

“It’s a bruise, but I’m good,” Rose said. “I just got knocked off, but I’m fine. It has happened before so I should be all right. It’s just like any other time you fall. You’re going to be sore. Thank God we don’t play (Thursday) and I can rest.”
